Could it be possible the recent appointment of Micheal Ennis to the coaching staff at the Eels has had some bearing on the Reed Mahoney situation?
If so, it could be due to either 1 of these 2 reasons.
1. Simply Reed is not a fan of Ennis.
2. Ennis or someone at the Eels has huge expectations on a player coming through at Parra or elsewhere, and the Ennis signing is predominantly for the further development of this player.
